Kid Updates!

Big Sister, Little Brother

First, Rowan! She has been blooming developmentally. She was released from Physical Therapy! This is a huge milestone! Rowan has been doing PT since she was 5 months old and now her therapist believes Rowan will continue to get stronger and more coordinated on her own. Her language has taken off too! We are *this close* to dropping down to one speech therapy appointment a week. Her progress has been amazing to see. She’s become more independent and confident. I really can’t wait to see how much she progresses in the next year.

Oh and health stuff? Awesome. Healthy as can be.

Julian! He’s 6 months old and is INSANE. He weighs 19lbs and is 28 1/4 inches tall. He started crawling a couple weeks ago. He started doing this bear walk thing that is so much more difficult than actual crawling. Now he’s kind of half crawling, half bear walking and he gets around! He’s been going after the cats and grabbing poor Sophie.  Recently, he managed to pull himself up. Seriously, insane. Julian is a busy, intense baby. He’s a huge flirt with the ladies and adores his big sister!


Thinking about it..

Julian was born on Oct 21, 2012 at 4:27am. He was 9lbs 14oz and 23in. Yes, you read that right. Almost 10 pounds! He is a great baby and Rowan loves being a big sister.

Rowan is 4!

It’s crazy, isn’t it? I can’t believe how grown up she is getting! Rowan is a girly girl through and through. She has strong opinions about what she wears (lots of pink or purple nowadays) and how she has her hair. I think she has about 4 purses. She actually said to me , “these shoes match my outfit”. I have no idea where she got that!

Rowan is doing great. Talking constantly. Constantly. She has an incredible memory and will talk about things that happened over a year ago. Her language is just exploding! It’s both awesome and crazy-making all at the same time!

I should also mention that healthwise, Rowan is still surprising her doctors. In May, she was taken off her last medication! So she is officially med free!

Prettiest Flower Girl Ever!

Prettiest Ever

Rowan was a flower girl in Ryan’s cousin Mallory’s wedding a few weeks ago in New Orleans. She did a GREAT job! Personally I think she stole the show (although Mallory did look amazing!).

As for other Rowan news, she’s doing so well. It’s always a good day when the therapists come out glowing about how well Rowan’s doing. We’ve had A LOT of good days lately. She’s talking more and more (and singing!), and using complete sentences. After a year of work, she’s finally mastered the “kkk”sound. That’s huge because her speech therapist has had to manipulate her soft palate to get her to make that sound. Which is as pleasant as it sounds. No more, though! She’s making k sounds all over the place.

Rowan is becoming more and more physically active. Running around, hopping and recently taught herself how to somersault! She’s gotten pretty crazy and a bit defiant, which is a lot of fun. She’s been healthy and just a typical 3 year old. I’ll take it!

Rowan in Galveston

We spent the last week in Galveston with Ryan’s family. Rowan LOVED the beach and had an amazing time. We even have video (thanks to Ryan’s mom) so I’ll post that as soon as I figure out how.

I Love This Kid!
